...I'm sure you've all seen the videos of Starbucks baristas going around just complaining about literally everything... I was just going to pick up my parking pass and there was a Starbucks around. I don’t really like Starbucks coffee, so I’m going to be an easy customer, and I’m just going to buy a fucking lemonade. Because I really like Starbucks fucking lemonade and they were like, that's it? you just want lemonade?

As somebody who worked at Starbucks I would just like to say Starbucks is an extremely stressful job but it’s not an excuse to be rude to customers.

I worked at Starbucks for 7 years and the only reason I can think that they would say any of that is because we almost NEVER have anyone order just- [lemonade].
